Many languages of the world (some with very large numbers of native speakers) are not yet supported on computers. In this pa- per we first present a simple method to pro- vide an extra layer of easily customizable language-encoding support for less comput- erized languages. We then describe an ed- itor called Sanchay Editor, which uses this method and also has many other facilities useful for those using less computerized lan- guages for simple text editing or for Nat- ural Language Processing purposes, espe- cially for annotation.
